Student Government Association
The purpose of the Student Government Association at Providence Academy (SGA) is two-fold: to contribute to the overall mission and purpose of the school, and to provide an opportunity for students to develop their God-given gifts and abilities. Each spring SGA officers are elected by the secondary student body, and class officers are elected by their respective classmates. During the summer all members attend a leadership and team-building workshop at PA. SGA recognizes that the foundation of its leadership must be based upon a willingness to serve all its constituents well. The responsibilities of SGA include the following: to help the school in any way requested by the student body, faculty/administration, and Student Government Advisor; to organize student body activities; and to make any recommendations necessary to further carry out the purpose of the Student Government.
The purpose of Honor Society at Providence Academy is to create enthusiasm for scholarship, to stimulate a desire to render service, to promote leadership, and to develop character in the students of secondary schools (Article I, section 2 of NHS Constitution). Nominees in grades 11 and 12 are selected and examined by the Providence Academy faculty and administration. Students may not apply for membership into Honor Society. All nominees are screened with respect to their outward demonstration of four qualities both in school and in the community: Scholarship, Service, Leadership, and Character. Students who are pre-selected as nominees must meet the first requirement of scholarship: a cumulative grade point average of 3.4.
Community Service Projects
A big part of our mission at Providence Academy is the development of spiritually mature students who understand the high calling of our Lord to live in a manner which brings both honor and glory to God. Within that part of our mission statement, we see community oriented ministry as a way to help our students grow in their faith.
Elementary Reading Week
Every fall the elementary classes celebrate great literature with their Reading Week. Each grade focuses on a specific book to read and enjoy. The highlight of the week is the Friday assembly, with students and faculty alike dressing in literary costumes and the faculty presenting an original skit–to the delight of students and parents.
